UPDATE: TRAFFIC & PEDESTRIAN CHANGES

LEASIDE STATION

Over January 7 & 8, the traffic conditions at Bayview Avenue and Eglinton Avenue East will change. Please review changes to lane configurations and turn restrictions on the map below. This stage will be in place for approximately six weeks. This is the same set-up that was in place from September to late October.


 TTC IMPACTS

 All TTC stops will remain in their current location.

 TIMING

  • Permitted hours are 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., seven (7) days per week
  • The contractor may not always work during the permitted hours, but may do so at its discretion.
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstance

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • This work will continue to early 2019. At that time work will shift from piling, decking and shallow excavation to deep excavation under the completed decking at the intersection.
  • Occasional overnight work may be required. Metrolinx will notify the public in advance and monitor activities throughout.
  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect noise in the area caused by excavation equipment, hydrovac trucks, concrete deliveries, loaders, trucks and other construction equipment.
  • In addition to construction activity, residents can expect to see equipment and material storage within designated work zones.
  • For safety purposes, fencing will be erected around the work zone.
  • All access to businesses is maintained throughout the stages.

TRAVELLING SMART DURING CONSTRUCTION
